I got this from a friend and loved, loved it. It's the perfect shade to put on to go to work or for a quick touch up on the way somewhere on the weekend! The packaging is fairly basic, with tube and wand, but the texture of the gloss and the shade was perfect for me. I prefer nude/neutral shades on my lip and this is great. I am having a hard time finding it now though, so I hope …Read more

This is one of my essential fragrances. I am on my third bottle... I like to wear it to work as I find it's more of a daytime smell on me. The sillage does seem to fade away after about an hour but I can still smell it on my skin well into the day. My second bottle was the EDT and that was actually a bit more longer lasting on me than the EDP. I like them both actually, and my get the …Read more

I got a large sample of this fragrance and was really surprised at how clean and fresh it was, and how much I liked it! So I finally bought a bottle at a duty free shop and have not regreted it... It is my go-to fragrance for work, and a great base for layering something else over it (such as a pachouli-based fragrance - I like it with a touch of papadescha and Bulgari Femme). I can see the …Read more

I do not normally wear lipstick because it dries up my lips and generally I prefer the more neutral or transparent look of lip gloss. A friend of mine gave me this lipstick recently and I LOVE it! It goes on smoothly, has a nice neutral color and it just complements whatever I'm wearing. And my lips are not dry at all. I wear it to work or to just around town and don't feel like …Read more

I got a sample at Sephora and could not wear this mascara. I ended up throwing away the sample tube I got... It was messy to apply, would start streaking during the day and overall was one of the most runny mascara I have ever used. Not going to buy this mascara.

I finally found a mascara I can put on in the morning, go to work all day, do a hard, sweaty workout after work and have zero smearing! Amazing. I used Lancome waterproof for many years and although it worked ok (but did smear at the end of the day), I decided to give this a try. I agree with other reviewers about not doing much for volume but it does a great job for me at separating and …Read more

Fell in love with this fragrance after a mist at the mall - very not like me to do that. At first I was skeptical of the caramel/vanilla tones of the perfume. But once I put it on, it mixes with a spicy and woodsy base and the smell becomes complex and multi-layered. The staying power is the best of all the fragrances I own. It's expensive but it feels expensive too and just getting a …Read more

I love the smell of this perfume on me. It's unique blend of spices, woodsy notes and a musky finish is fabulous. It feels great during a cool, winter day and is also fabulous during a warm summer night. It evolves on the skin and has long staying power on me. I love the camphor-type of note that comes out about halfway-through. But it's difficult to find so when I fianlly saw it …Read more

Sep/21/2008

I got a sample of this perfume from a fellow MUAer and loved it. However, when I got the full bottle and started using it, I found out that it has very little staying power on me. I smell it for a bit and then it's completely gone. Some fragrances leave a lingering base note on my skin all day long, this one is just gone after the top and middle notes have evaporated. So I won't …Read more
